March 6 Community Garden Opening Meeting

winter is deadCommunity Garden Opening Meeting
Sunday, March 6, 2016 from 2-4 pm
Durham Town Hall
This meeting is mandatory if you plan to garden at Wagon Hill for the 2016 season.
Send your gardening partner if you can’t be there. 
If you know now that you are NOT planning to garden next season, please send Kay Morgan an email. 
 
Two changes for next season:  
  1. We purchased & stored 2000 wooden tongue depressors in the shed. Plastic plant markers (which are often left behind in the garden or placed in the compost piles) will not be allowed. Use the bio-degradable wood.
  2. We are not placing a large order for sweet potatoes. Most of us had significant vole/mole/mouse damage to sweet potatoes last year.  We are trying to interrupt the cycle of having such well-fed critters in the garden.  You may still plant them, but you will have to order your own.

Finally, we want to notify you of a couple of local educational opportunities:

  • Durham Agriculture Commission is sponsoring “Seed Starting” at the Durham Public Library March 9, 7 pm. Presenter is Jeremy DeLisle from UNH Cooperative Extension in Goffstown.
